New York's Empire State Building Admission Ticket

Reviewed by: Paula, 2017/09/30

I just want to say that the staff were wonderful. I went after a theatre show, my first day in town. It was late; I was tired, but determined to go. It was not crowded, but it seemed endless to reach the final station, probably because I was tired. Did not realize what I printed off from you all was a voucher, not a ticket, so I was told I had to return to the ticket office. I was ready to give it up! The gentleman encouraged me not to 'give up' and actually walked me through to the ticket office. The gentleman behind the ticket window couldn't have been kinder. I don't know why New Yorkers have the reputation for being "rude"; I found most people I talked with during my stay patient and helpful. Looking forward to returning next year for more discoveries with City-Discovery.

Helicopter Flight over the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and More

Reviewed by: Miguel, 2015/04/05

We did the The Big Apple Helicopter Ride recently and we thought it is a great idea to experience New York from above. The views are great, the pilot was nice and guided us through what we were viewing, and as a first time on a helicopter we found it amazing and very exciting. It is a short ride but worth it. New York is a particular city, where arising from the above is a fantastic experience. Definitely recommend it. I would only suggest that the official picture it is taken should be available in electronic version, instead of only as hard copy.

Guided Sightseeing Bus Tours to New York City's Highlights and Landmarks

Reviewed by: Brian, 2012/02/16

We did the Premium Tour and we could not have been happier. It was our first day in NYC and the perfect time to do the tour as we got to see so much, that we probably wouldn't have seen doing it on our own. Everything was packing into 7 hours and Stefan was an excellent tour guide, it was like hanging out with a friend and Karen was a fantastic driver, they were both very friendly. I recommend this trip to everyone going to NYC whether it be your first or tenth time as you will most likely see something for the first time. Thank you!!

New York CityPASS (Empire State Building, Museums, Statue of Liberty and More)

Reviewed by: Daniel, 2017/06/29

It made our NYC Site-Seeing so much more enjoyable!! We were able to skip lines to purchase tickets!! We were able to jump in front of other lines, because of our passes! It made it SO simple!! Pull out the booklet, and show them your ticket...and you (and your family) are in!! I highly recommend the City Pass. All the attractions are familiar with them. We were able to pack-in so much more stuff, because we saved a ton of time by not standing in line to purchase tickets at each location.

Manhattan Bus Tour with NYC Harbor Ferry Cruise and Top of the Rock Admission

Reviewed by: Ivan, 2017/01/26

This is THE best tour. You can't beat the knowledge gained about Manhattan. The small, private bus and TOUR GUIDE were incredible. I have to stress that he was GREAT. The boat ride on the Hudson out to the Statue of Liberty was incredible...and all capped off with tickets to the Top of the Rock. An excellent value at $109. Trying to do all of these things separately would be a lot more expensive. I even think New Yorkers would benefit from this tour. LOVED it—8 hours well spent.

My grandson and I took this tour and could not have been happier with what we learned about the city, with the clear orientation to the city, the history provided, the upbeat tone, and the general comfort of the tour. It was the perfect introduction to the city. When I asked my grandson, age 17, he named this tour as the number one thing to do when I take his cousin in a couple of months. Thank you for doing a superb job. Georganne

We did this trip on 28th July. It was extremely good value, the guide called 'Lady' was excellent, so knowledgeable and with a great sense of humour as well. We would recommend this trip to anyone considering trying to get a flavour of the sights of New York, we had three further days there and were able to go back and do in more detail some of the places we visited.

All Loops Hop On Hop Off Double Decker Bus Tour

Reviewed by: Valerie, 2014/09/15

Found site very easy and straightforward to use. As we have limited time (4 days) in New York in November, we want to do a helicopter and unsure what the weather will be like then, so instead of booking that we will wait until we are there. The only suggestion I can make is to be flexi with dates .nKeep up the good work for us tourists, it is so helpful.

Brilliant tour, our guide Ryan was very friendly and gave us a lot of interesting background information about the places we visited. Only quibble was that we struggled to find the meeting point for the start of the tour as there was no specific meeting point just the street; but all in all a brilliant day out.

Our guide helped making the tour a success. She was excellent in every way - friendly, knowledgeable, with a great sense of humour and offering good tips. The tour itself is well planned though.
If possible at all to extend the duration of this tour, I'd include an hour shopping in China town area...

Our tour guide was awesome!! He knew so much about the city and was NYC personified. Brooklyn Jim is the guy to take a tour with! We got around the city easily on a bus with air conditioning (major plus!) and we got to see so much in a short time. Definitely recommend this tour!

A wonderful way for a first short visit to New York. We were on a cruise ship and only had 10 hours to spend in New York. We did the downtown loop as well as the uptown one (the one we particularly recommend!). The commentaries were very good and we had a great time.
